I'm a "new" dog owner. Have had cats for over a year now, adopted our dog back in February. Now that the winter weather is finally going away, it's getting warm. We have a pitbull (extremely short coat) but he sheds A LOT! Our vet recommended bathing him 1-2x a month but he still reeks...BAD. It seems as if the heat escalates the dog stench in the house. There is fur everywhere and I just can't take it. It just makes the house smell so bad.
I vacuum 2x a day, febreeze, have bought renuzit cones to refreshen the house but because it absorbs the odor, we go through them in no time. I even use baking soda on the carpet, and use freshening spray every couple of days on the dog (sold at PetCo). Anything else I can do? I'm really sensitive to smells and while I don't expect my house to smell like flowers, I'd love to mask the doggy smell.
